Swamp Lanter Festival

Admission: adults over 18 - $7, seniors - $6, students - $5, EBT cardholders - $3, children under 5 – free; Adopt A Stream Foundation members free. Sorry, no dogs allowed. The featured attraction is a very large expanse of the first spring flowers of the Pacific Northwest - Skunk Cabbage (Lysichiton americanus). Surrounding each flower, called a spadix, is a vibrant yellow sheath called a spathe that earned this beautiful plant the nickname “Swamp Lantern.” Getting to the swamp lanterns is an adventure. You will stroll past a unique Trout Stream Exhibit onto an Elevated Nature Walk just above the forest floor and surrounding wetlands. The 1/2 mile-long route is baby carriage and wheel chair accessible. It winds through duck ponds and cedar groves, past a salmon stream, and through four varieties of wetlands. Rest stops are located at strategic viewpoints. During the Swamp Lantern Festival, many other native flowers will begin to bloom making the Northwest Stream Center a “must see” place for everyone who enjoys wildflowers of spring!
The Northwest Stream Center is still on a reservation only basis; Tuesdays - Saturdays, 10 AM - 4 PM. To make a reservation, visit: https://www.picktime.com/NWSCReservations

Pigs Peace Sanctuary Needs Your Help
This winter, the Sanctuary received more snow than ever before, and really need donations to keep the pigs safe, fed, and warm. The snow made it difficult to clear the pigs' feeding areas and get food to them, as well as working with frozen water dishes and keeping water hoses thawed. This winter's snow was the deepest ever! Your donation helps feed the pigs, keep them supplied with hay and hydrated, and make necessary repairs of weather-damaged equipment.
Please help if you can. https://www.pigspeace.org/main/donate.html

Home to Home Program: Keeping Pets Out of the Shelter
Seattle Humane is working hard to keep families together through its community outreach programs, but sometimes pet guardians have to make the very difficult decision to find new homes for their furry friends. Rather than go through the stressful process of surrendering them to our shelter, pet guardians now have the option of using Seattle Humane’s Home to Home program. This direct-to-adopter tool lets people communicate with prospective adopters, and find the right new home for their pets. The Home to Home program has had an amazing response since it launched almost a month ago, with 14 lucky pets finding new homes. Many incoming surrenders to Seattle Humane have been canceled recently, because Home to Home gave pet guardians the right tools to handle rehoming on their own. If you’re needing to rehome a pet or looking to grow your family, please visit sh.home-home.org.
Adoption by Appointment: Under Seattle Humane’s new adoptions-by-appointment system, prospective adopters will first be asked to identify the pet they’re interested in taking home and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. A Seattle Humane team member will contact applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be an over-the-phone advising process to ensure they are a good match for the dog, cat, or critter they wish to adopt. Seattle Humane does not have a set timeline for when an adopter might be invited to campus for an in-person meeting with an adoption candidate, but people will have the option of placing a hold on a shelter animal in the meantime. More details about the new system are available at https://www.seattlehumane.org/adoption.
Public Spay and Neuter Services are now available. Sign up on the Spay and Neuter page at the website.

Updates from MEOW www.meowcatrescue.org
Become a MEOW Guardian Angel: A "Guardian Angel" is a person who cares deeply for an adult cat or cats, but isn't in the position to adopt them. This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.
Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. If you know someone who could use their help, please have them call the shelter (425-822-6369) or email MEOW at firstname.lastname@example.org
